Prof gives free pass to stu­dent who ditched class for Se­ries

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

CLEVE­LAND >> An Ohio col­lege stu­dent who ditched class to head to the open­ing game of the World Se­ries in Cleve­land has won a re­prieve from his pro­fes­sor by be­ing hon­est.

Ohio Univer­sity pro­fes­sor Damian Nance says Char­lie Turner checked into his Tues­day class by swip­ing a card, but wasn’t there when Nance took at­ten­dance at the end of the ses­sion.

Turner came clean after Nance emailed him, ask­ing for an ex­pla­na­tion. Turner told the pro­fes­sor his fa­ther had got­ten him tick­ets to the game against the Chicago Cubs and that he left for Cleve­land after check­ing in. He in­cluded a pic­ture of him­self and his brother at Pro­gres­sive Field.

Nance re­sponded by call­ing it “an im­pec­ca­ble ex­cuse,” and added “no reper­cus­sions.”

Nance tells The As­so­ci­ated Press he let Turner off the hook, not be­cause he’s a big In­di­ans fan, but be­cause the stu­dent “fessed up.”
